“Then the wolf shall be a guest of the lamb,
How often in my life do I reflect on peace? To be completely honest, today has been the first time I have in quite some time. I shy away from turning on the news because the evil happening in the world is disheartening. How can we as human beings be doing these wicked things to one another? Oftentimes, I ignore all of the turmoil in the world because of a dishonest voice in my head that tells me I can do nothing about it. However, as I walk through this advent season, I need to pray for peace in my own life, but more importantly, in my communities and in this world. Through Him, PEACE is possible.
“Let us not use bombs and guns to overcome the world. Let us use love and compassion. Peace begins with a smile. Smile five times a day at someone you don’t really want to smile at; do it for peace. Let us radiate the peace of God and His light and extinguish in the world and in the hearts of all men hatred and love for power. Today, if we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.” –Blessed Mother Teresa
